Jodi Arias is More Important to Americans Than Benghazi!

If you ask your average American who Jodi Arias is, they will not only tell you who the slice and dice “Boyfriend Murderer” is, most Americans can relate every, single detail of the Arias murder trial and Jodi Arias’ life. But whatever you do, don’t ask too many Americans to enlighten you with the details of who, what, and where Benghazi is, you’ll most likely receive a blank stare. That’s because the slaughter of four brave American men–ignored by the Hillary Clinton’s U.S. State Department and Barry Obama’s White House during real time calls pleading for help–doesn’t compare to a blonde sexpot (suddenly turned dowdy four-eyed brunette spinster librarian) who shot her lover in the face before stabbing him 27 times and slitting his throat from ear-to-ear “in self defense.”

Just a note to all of you Jodi Arias aficionados; Benghazi is not a leg-breaker for hire from Brooklyn, New York or that really kool Japanese hibachi restaurant.

The above is not hyperbole, it’s a sad fact. The majority of Americans know who Jodi Arias is. So many Americans are preoccupied with her murder trial, that Arias has become the reigning queen daytime TV. Jodi Arias is a star and consumed more often at every dinner and dinner party discussion than our in-trouble-country.

Jodi Arias has been turned into a celebrity by TV, magazines, newspapers, pop culture and gossip. I wouldn’t be surprised if Arias has been the 2012-2013 colleges and universities leading lectures in every pre-law and law school classes versus the U.S. Constitution, vital history-changing Supreme Court cases, and Magna Carta.

If Jodi Arias gets off on self-defense for her violent act, America definitely owes Saddam Hussein an apology for calling his vicious style of torture, rape, and murder violent brutality.

Benghazi on the other hand has been turned into, as White House Press Secretary Jay Carney incongruously phrases it: “Let’s be clear, Benghazi happened a long time-ago.” In other words, old news.

Actually Carney, Pearl Harbor happened a long time ago, but that generation has never lost the horrible memory of what Japan did to America’s naval fleet, our brave men in uniform, or Hawaii’s maimed and murdered civilians.

ignoring benghazi

The point is, for most Americans, Benghazi never happened, and not because Americans lack care, but for the reasons that the mainstream media ignored the slaughter in Libya in order to cover Obama’s butt in the weeks leading up to the November 2012 election. Heaven forbid voters might discover the president possibly ignored men being slaughtered. Those voters may not have reelected President Obama.

obama benghazi

Worse yet, a Democrat White House scandal involving the murder of what happened to our men in women on the front lines is simply not as important as the murder trial of a tight-skirted, over-sexed knife-wielding loser bar-fly, or heaven forbid, missing an episode of Dancing With The Stars.

Jodi Arias is more important than the many economical and national security threats altering our nation, our lives, and the future of America.

Ask yourself this: How many times has important news regarding our troops overseas, national security threats caused by the failing U.S. economy, America’s failing education system, poor jobs numbers,  $2.2 trillion in entitlement spending bankrupting America, the $16.7 trillion and counting deficit in which “three-quarters of the deficit was financed by the Federal Reserve,”  Ben Bernanke over printing money and buying up more assets while the Dow Jones Industrial Average rises (creating unstable fiat-backed paper bubble that will burst into a Weimar and crash the markets if Ben doesn’t stop) for the live courtroom drama of Jodi Arias? How often is news concerning Obama’s preventing the much-needed pipeline, drilling on and off America shores for oil, coal and natural gas, and excessive borrowing from China, whom our government fawns over, and subsidizing questionable left-wing “Green” companies ignored for Jodi Arias’ trial?  What about the ignoring of the $6.3 trillion cost that will be added to the deficit if Marco Rubio’s “Gang of 8” amnesty bill goes through and provides 12 million illegals (I find it hard to believe that number is not 30-40 million after 30 years of amnesty bills) welfare and other tax-funded benefits that will pull the economy down further in order for TV cameras to focus on how Jodi Arias murdered her boyfriend? The answer is daily.

Furthermore, how many Americans can describe for you the blonde Jodi look versus the brunette Jodi look, but those same people are unable to illustrate the details Ty Woods experienced in order to try and save the U.S. Consulate Ambassador and his aides, as well the particulars of the four men being slaughtered by Muslim militants as they begged the State Department for support? How many Americans know who Ty Woods, Ambassador Stevens, Sean smith and Glen Doherty were? I’ve no doubt many Americans do know the name Ty Woods and Ambassador Stevens, but sadly that is as far as the knowledge extends.

benghazi men

I’m not even sure how many American high school and college kids, not to mention their dimwit parents, are aware that Susan Rice is not a brand you find in Isle Four of your super market.

More people know endless details about Jodi Arias’ life and trial than they know their own blood type.

Jodi Arias and her sensationalized trial are more important to Americans than every crisis we Americans are facing. If Jodi Arias gets off on self-defense, America owes Saddam Hussein an apology for calling his vicious style of torture, rape, and murder brutality.

Jodi Arias faces death (death most likely being 20 years of life sitting in prison cell thinking about how perhaps she should have only stabbed her boyfriend three times after blowing his head off) while America is facing the life and death of the Republic our Founders fought and many died for so we could have liberty.

Arias’ sentence is set to be handed down this week. But I say the judge should give Arias one act of community service Americans would be happy to agree to: Let Jodi Arias nurse the Boston Bomber before his trial since Arias is quite enthusiastic about taking care of gunshot wounds.

Where’s the Combat Footage?

desert storm

During Operations Desert Shield/Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom the press was embedded with American troops showing regular footage to American T.V. watchers causing an anti-incumbent sentiment as it was designed. Americans saw guided bomb hits, infantry assaults, tank maneuvers.. One question remains – where are the combat reporters in Afghanistan during Obama’s leadership?

No Time magazine covers of injured soldiers? New Y0rk Times interviews with Afghanistan civilians? No huge stories on torture, Gitmo or any of the other activities that have not stopped during the Presidency of Barack Obama despite his promises?

The impeachment of the American media is incomplete. While many have asked about the rush to judgement in the Treyvon Martin shooting, the lack of honesty from Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, there is more that is oddly missing and unjust.

Remember this video from CNN when we had a real President?

When was the last 60 minutes story on the fighting in the Middle East?

While CBS news is covering Pizza Hut creations in the region there is no riveting TV coverage of the fighting in the tribal regions of Afghanistan.

Is it the quiet cover for the sitting President that no one objects to? Sure, there are printed stories and 10 second quick-cover stories, but where are the every day battering of the American population with war footage that happened during a Republican presidency?

There is the current Administration’s disdain of Bush’s “unilateral” action in the region despite the press coverage of British successes and the more than 25 nations involved in the conflict. The media and re-historians even paint President George H.W. Bush as a fascist.

The previous White House also sought the approval of Congress for military actions as outlined by U.S. law – a process the Obama Administration has waved off, ignored and spoken against. Why Congress is not more inflamed that their part in our government has been lessened is unfathomable, questionable and possibly impeachable.

Congress has forgotten our fighting men and women. The press could care less about them. When it is not politically advantageous to do so, the most brave are forgotten – where is the combat footage?

The main stream media cover for the Democrat administration is not as obvious as many point out – in many cases, it is as simple as forgetting to report what’s actually going on because it suits an end.. by any means.

As we near Memorial Day, it is a behavior that Americans must deplore, outrage against and decide whether those networks deserve their time and money.

Obama’s Marxist 2012 Reelection Campaign

Barack Obama’s 2012 taxpayer-funded reelection campaign contains many elements, including massive doses of class warfare and racially-divisive rhetoric, (think, ” If I had a son he’d look just like Trayvon”) massive misinformation about the viability of taxpayer-funded green energy programs, the always-loved-by-the-far-left-radicals hate-speech directed at anyone in America who is successful (think taxing anyone making over $250k) with that last aspect also including the misinformation-laden Obama 2012 war on big oil companies. Barack Obama’s current 2012 reelection campaign rhetoric shows America a man who must attempt to distract American voters from looking at his dismal record during his historic failure of a first [and only] term as president of the United States of America.

What most Americans do not seem to be able to grasp today is the fact that Obama’s current campaign rhetoric follows very closely with another centuries-old form of using misinformation to nudge public perceptions campaign, that of one Karl Marx, the founder of what has now known worldwide as Marxism.

Marxism, according to Bing Dictionary is defined as: a: the political and economic theories of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, in which class struggle is a central element in the analysis of social change in Western societies, and b:  political ideology based on the theories of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. (emphasis added)

There it is, Obama2012 defined in one simple sentence: Class struggle being promoted as a main element in a drive to effect social change. This also goes hand in glove with Obama’s Hope and Change campaign of 2008, where he promised to “fundamentally transform America” and where he told Joe the plumber that we must “spread the wealth around.”

 In yet another taxpayer-funded campaign speech last week, Obama continued his call for Karl Marx-inspired wealth redistribution in his continuing war on big oil companies, as Larry Kudlow explains:

“Once again this week, the president was out on the campaign trail bashing and oil and gas companies. And he continued to spread major falsehoods about this industry, which I guess is the polite way to put it.

 Obama is obsessed with oil and gas. He is a prisoner of the left-wing environmental groups. And really, he’s extending his leftist class-warfare attack from rich people to successful oil and gas producers.”
“What seems to have Obama especially steamed is the fact that the conventional-energy companies are profitable. Especially the five largest. So he wants to tax them. He then wants to redistribute their income to his favorite green-energy firms. Sound familiar? I don’t know which is more important to the president — the fact that he hates fossil fuel, or the fact that he hates success. Or that he wants an energy-entitlement state.” (emphasis added)
Enabled by the media-misfits of today, Barack Obama is being given a pass by political operatives posing as reporters on Obama’s obvious implementation of Marxist policies to transform America. Anyone who points out the definition of Marxism, and it’s obvious direct correlation of Barack Obama’s ideology in policy-making being based on the teachings of Karl Marx as a way to fundamentally transform a nation… are immediately labeled  as a right-wing extremist or other nasty Left-wing catch-phrases dug up from third grade name-calling contests.
Karl Marx is quoted from The Communist Manifesto he authored, as stating,  “The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Working Men of All Countries, Unite!”  This last sentence  has been used frequently by Obama-Union-Operative Andy Stern, the head of SEIU and President Barack Obama’s most frequent White House guest, as stated during a discussion about his planned globalization of SEIU. In case our readers are not familar with just who Andy Stern truly is, along with his Obama connections and Marxist ideology, read this.
In summary, Barack Obama’s proven Marxist ideology has been evident for anyone actually interesting in vetting this man as a candidate for U.S. President during the 2008 presidential elections. That simply did not happen, by design. The media has steadfastly chosen to ignore these facts and still does today to the detriment of America. In the immortal words of the truth-telling Andrew Breitbart, may God rest his soul, “we fully intend to vet Barack Obama in the 2012 elections.” Barack Obama is a Marxist bent on transforming America by destroying her capitalistic system and free markets, empowering a statist central government over it’s people, while taking from one class of citizens to redistribute it to another to buy votes and power. This is right out in the open for all to see in one aspect or another, in every taxpayer-funded speech Obama gives today. All you have to do is listen for it.
The revolution made progress, not by its immediate tragicomic achievements but by the creation of a powerful, united counter-revolution, an opponent in combat with whom the party of overthrow ripened into a really revolutionary party.”  Karl Marx- 1850 from Class Struggle in France .

 

Media Pushing False GM Success Story to Reelect Obama

   ***In living memory of conservative truth-teller Andrew Breitbart who passed away last week at 43 years of age. Andrew dedicated his life to exposing the Liberal media complex, and their constant refusal to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. This one’s for you Andrew. Godspeed.***

President Obama has made the GM “success story” a huge part of his reelection campaign of 2012. This false narrative about General Motor’s “record profits” has been constantly inserted into the numerous campaign speeches and fundraisers Obama has been on recently, always under the guise of them being policy speeches. Another fact that needs to be reported, is that these “policy speeches” are nothing more than [taxpayer-funded] reelect Obama pep rallies and campaign tours. Doesn’t America have a legislative body known as the U.S. Congress that is supposed to stop the illegal usage of tax dollars for reelection campaign operations? Congress idly sits by and remains silent, while Americans are bombarded daily with reelect Barack Obama speeches largely paid for by the taxpayer, and parroted on national television by his pals in the media. Stop the nonsense Mr.President, and pay for your own reelection campaign tour.

As far as the recent media bombardment of television replays of Obama campaign speeches trumpeting him as the great savior behind General Motor’s [supposed] record profits of 2011, let’s not forget that it was G.W.Bush and the Democratically-controlled Congress of 2008 who started the big government graft package to the UAW, also known as the auto bailouts. Barack Obama simply took advantage of this already-in-place big government fraud to further enrich his bed-pals over at the UAW in exchange for their campaign support. The false claims about the GM success story of 2011 contains many fallacies, all of which are being pumped out daily by the Liberal media complex to enhance Barack Obama’s reelection image: (emphasis added)

First off we see the Detroit News claiming that GM retook the stage as world’s largest auto maker in 2011. It didn’t take long for this fairy tale to be debunked, as we see from Motor Trend Mag. and the CEO of Volkswagen:

Now Volkswagen is disputing the claims and suggesting that it bested GM last year. According to Automotive News, Volkswagen’s 8.16-million figure doesn’t include sales from commercial truck divisions MAN and Scania. Once those figures are added, it will significantly bolster VW’s annual sales tally.

On top of that, GM’s sales figure was padded with about one million sales by Chinese automakers SAIC Motor Corp. and Wuling Motors Co. — companies with which GM has joint ventures, but in which the American company does not have a controlling stake. If those sales were excluded and VW’s truck figures added, Volkswagen would probably steal the global sales crown from GM.

President Obama should have enough political advisers and speechwriters researching that already-discredited claim, one which he shouldn’t have made in the first place, let alone keep on the repeating that kind of tripe to bolster his image. Yet it makes Obama look good, so expect him to keep on parroting that myth here in 2012. Obviously, the truth does not matter to Obama and his political operatives in the media, especially when there is a reelection campaign to run.

Next we see that “Millions of jobs were created or saved”  due to the taxpayer graft and abuse more widely known as the auto bailouts, which we constantly hear Obama claim  in numerous campaign speeches. What about GM laying off 70% of its employees at a Detroit plant recently, all of whom had just came off an extended layoff posing as a “Christmas break?” Warren Beatty explains The Never Ending Chevy Volt Saga:

“General Motors (GM), or Government Motors, announced on Friday, March 2, 2012, that it will suspend Chevrolet Volt production for five weeks to “align production with demand.” GM told 1,300 employees at its Detroit Hamtramck production facility that they will be temporarily laid off from March 19 to April 23, as the company halts production of the Chevrolet Volt and its European counterpart, the Opel Ampera. The plant had resumed production on February 6, 2012, after a prolonged Christmas holiday shutdown.”

Not only has the UAW [that now controls GM] been voraciously feeding at the taxpayer-funded TARP-trough, GM has also sucked down millions of tax dollars through the D.O.E. green energy programs. The Chevy Volt scam should be filed under double-dipping taxpayer abuse 101, while also being cross-filed under massive-taxpayer-funded green-energy-failures, right next to the green-cars-for-the-rich-Obama-supporters file. Taxpayers were subsidizing the Chevy Volt fireball-waiting-to-happen junker at the rate of $7500.00 per unit sold in 2011. In Obama’s latest Chevy Volt scam, he has asked the taxpayers to pay for an even bigger subsidy for the Chevy Volt: A whopping $10,000.00 dollars a pop! ( in his latest proposed budget for 2013) The Obama media complex was on TV last weekend blaming the Chevy Volt failure on… wait for it… bad publicity. Yet yesterday, a GM spokesman and Obama-puppet announced that one of the reasons the Volt plant workers were laid off is to “retool” the plant, which includes improvements to rebuild the battery cooling system in the Volt to prevent people from being burned alive while in it, or having their homes burned down while charging it. Which lie are the people supposed to believe there?

GM made $9 billion in 2011; how much did they pay in their fair share taxes? ZERO. See this Harvard law School Forum paper, on how Obama’s favorite tax evasion felon, and current treasury secretary, Tim Geithner gave GM and the UAW a $45 billion dollar tax break, which results in them being exempt from paying their fair share of taxes for about a decade or longer. Take away GM’s taxpayer-funded subsidies and illegal tax exemptions, and lo and behold the great reelect Obama GM success story is proven to be more in line with Marxist propaganda designed to fool the masses, as opposed to any form of truth-telling and government transparency. When is the last time anyone [ if ever] saw the mainstream media report on GM’s illegal tax exemption of $45 billion?  The Liberal Media Complex refuses to tell the truth as far as the GM refusing to pay their fair share in taxes-driven success story goes, and this mandate comes right down from the White House to the media to protect Obama and enhance his reelection chances.

Finally, as American’s watch President Obamacontinue to boast about GM’s “record profits”, ( while paying zero taxes) we see this from Ed Morrissey: Great news: Le Bailoutte de Peugeot avec Le US Taxpayer Francs, in which we see that GM buying stock in another failing car company, Peugeot of France, and one which was reduced to junk bond status the day after the “purchase.”

So how did that work out?  About as well as you’d imagine.  As soon as GM had some cash, it decided to invest it — in another car company whose bonds had achieved le junk status:

Attention U.S. taxpayers:  You now own a piece of a French car company that is drowning in red ink.

That’s right.  In a move little noticed outside of the business pages, General Motors last week bought more than $400 million in shares of PSA Peugeot Citroen – a 7 percent stake in the company. …

Peugeot can undoubtedly use the cash.  Last year, Peugeot’s auto making division lost $123 million.  And on March 1 – just a day after the deal with GM was announced – Moody’s downgraded Peugeot’s credit rating to junk status with a negative outlook, citing “severe deterioration” of its finances.

In other words, General Motors essentially just dumped more than $400 million of taxpayer assets on junk bonds.

What really proves the point that the mainstream media is promoting the reelection of Barack Obama through parroting the phony GM success story, is the fact that exactly zero major news networks have reported on GM’s recent purchase of 7% of Peugeot, and the subsequent downgrade to junk bond status the day after GM pumped $400 million bucks into the company.  ABC did report one troubling aspect of Government Motors purchasing another in-the-red car company, which is quite telling on it’s own:

ABC’s Jonathan Karl notes that while GM bought a big stake in Peugeot, the Peugeot family had an opportunity to buy a stake in GM.  They passed on that “opportunity,” which just proves that the Peugeot family is smarter than GM.

And Barack Obama is betting that America will be gullible enough to believe his media operatives fairy tale narrative on the great GM Success Story of 2012, and reward him with four more years in office, and to prove how well the Liberal media complex has sold this GM success-charade to the masses. As  the uber-courageous truth-teller and unabashed conservative, Andrew Breitbart would ask America: “Who are you going to believe when you go to the polls in 2012 to pick the next President of the United States, the Liberal media complex… or the truth contained herein concerning the big GM success lie of 2012?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Solyndra-Style DOE Loan Report Released

The Obama administration was caught red-handed giving a half-billion, taxpayer-funded green energy loan to a [now bankrupt] green energy company in what is now known as the Solyndra  pay-for-play scandal. While the media downplayed the event, thanks to citizen reporting and social media programs on the Internet, most concerned citizens are now aware of how the Obama administration and the DOE have been using Solyndra-style green energy loans to fill Democrat’s campaign coffers at taxpayer expense.

To add insult to injury, Solyndra employees were caught by a news crew effectively throwing away more taxpayer dollars, as can be seen here. As the public outcry about this taxpayer abuse became louder, Congress started holding hearings about just what went down at Solyndra. So what’s the White House to do under such scrutiny? They hire the former treasury official, Mr. Herb Allison, the former Treasury official who oversaw the TARP [fraud] program to spin up a “report” to try to paint the Solyndra scandal in a good light. This is nothing more than propaganda 101 folks, designed to sweep the Solyndra scandal under the rug. Nothing to see here folks, just move along.

The recently released, ” W/H ‘Independent’ Report on DOE Loans” can be read in it’s entirety here.  While the White House relies on the keywords “independent” and “outsider” in an attempt to make it appear as if this report was done by someone with no DC connections, as noted above it was, in fact, done by the former TARP overseer Mr. Allison. That would be the very same TARP program in which there was very little transparency in spending almost a trillion dollars of the people’s money, which has left most people wondering just where all that money went today.  In a quick response to the release of this report, Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr. (R-Wis.) stated, “This is less a report than an umbrella to deflect the criticism that’s pouring down on the Administration,” In other words, file this report under the Obama-propaganda 101 category.

The Hill came out with an article on the DOE Energy Loan report that has some interesting factoids about this report: (emphasis added)

An outside review of the Energy Department’s embattled green energy loan program calls for several steps to improve oversight but also provides lower estimates of taxpayer risk than an earlier federal forecast.

The “reduced risk” to taxpayers odds of losing their hard-earned dollars, according to this report, has now went down from an estimated $5 billion dollars to a new and revised number of $3 billion tax dollars being put at rick of loss. Color the taxpayers happy and break out the champagne! Does that “reduced figure” of $3 billion lost taxpayer dollars contain the previously lost billions in several bankrupt green energy scams , including  Solyndra? No it doesn’t, and the Obama administration wants the citizenry to forget the lost/stolen/wasted, half a billion tax dollars for the Solyndra pay-for-play scandal, just like they are stonewalling Congressional investigations, lying and trying to cover up the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal that got Brian Terry and thousands of other folks murdered by assault weapons sold by our very own government!

What is also a semi-hidden mind-massage that is being sent to Congress by this report, is that big government needs to get bigger.  Again this is in reference to The Hill article that states: “The report calls on the department to name a “Chief Risk Officer” who would head up a “Risk Management unit” charged with monitoring the loans.” A New Chief officer is now needed to head up a new risk management unit, all on the taxpayer dime because the current incompetents could not properly do their jobs in protecting the people from the taxpayer abuse described above.  Here is a serious hat tip: If the DOE is so incompetent that it can not properly protect the taxpayer from fraud and abuse, while doling out hundreds of billions of tax dollars, then abolish the whole frigging department immediately!

In summary, the recently-released so-called “W/H independent, outsider report is a bunch of bunk put out to allow the current administration to continue using the DOE green energy loan program as a reelect Barack Obama campaign and democrats slush fund, period. Let’s hope Congress is listening to this and takes action to stop any further green energy funding fraud that is designed to reelect Barack Obama and company. That must include no tax dollars to fund the new DOE loans Chief Risk Officer and his bureaucratic big government unit that this propaganda piece posing as an “independent report” is plotting towards starting.

 

 

 

The Left Loves Newt Gingrich

Remember when we used to say “don’t let the media choose our candidate”? Well, they are, and they’ve convinced large numbers of Republican primary voters to do their bidding.

From this an interview with George Soros, courtesy of Breitbart.TV:

… if you have an extremist conservative, be it Gingrich or Santorum, in which case I think it will make a big difference, which of the two comes in. If it’s between Obama and Romney, there isn’t all that much difference, except for the crowd they bring with them …

Why would Soros point out something which many conservatives instinctively believe? For the reaction! He wants conservatives to jump out of their seats and shout “See, I told you so! Newt’s a real conservative and Romney’s just another Obama! Even George Soros says so!”, which some of you undoubtedly did just now.

George Soros is a skillful manipulator. He knows how some Republican voters will react to his statement: Greater approval for Newt Gingrich (or Rick Santorum).

Then there’s this tired repeat of an old accusation by Nancy Pelosi:

There’s something I know (about Gingrich)… the Republicans, if they choose to nominate him, that’s their prerogative…

Pelosi, like Soros, knows how she is perceived by the right: As an instigator. Why would she drop this “tidbit” (which is probably a bluff) again? Because she knows what the Republican reaction will be: An immediate defense of Newt from loathsome Nancy Pelosi. The last time she did it, Newt’s response to her allegation was a memorable throwing down of his gauntlet. Giving Gingrich an opportunity to make such a spectacular riposte was not a misstep on Nancy’s part- her statement was calculated to give him such an opportunity!

Speaking of opportunities given to Gingrich to render a memorably grandiose defense: The CNN debate, where John King opened with his tawdry question about the Marianne Gingrich interview. Does the reader honestly believe that liberal news outlets don’t think ahead before taking an action? This question was planned in advance, to capitalize on Gingrich’s speaking ability and give him an “easy win” to attract support from the audience.

You see, liberals have gained dominance through manipulation. The leaders of the leftist movement- the head honchos of liberal media outlets, the well-known bombthrowers like Pelosi, the cloak-and-dagger operatives like Soros- have succeeded because they manipulate voters. This includes manipulating Republican voters.

So why would these figures want to engender greater support for Newt Gingrich? Simple: Because he can’t win in November! These people want Republican voters to choose a candidate who can be beaten by Obama. They know Gingrich will eventually embarass the party as he did before, and make their future victories easier.

And for those who salivate over the prospect of an epic Obama/Gingrich debate: There will be no Lincoln-Douglas-style debate between the two men. There will be no long series of twice-per-week prime time debates. Obama will avoid debating Gingrich, and Gingrich will be deprived of his one-trick campaign pony.

Every one of us involved in this process has implored others, at one point or another, to “not let the liberals choose our candidate”. That is exactly what the liberal establishment is doing now.

And they are succeeding.

Reporter Blows the Lid Off DNC “Secret Media Meeting”

The Democratic National Convention will be held in Charlotte, N.C. this year. As The Charlotte Observer reports, the DNC committee has decided to shorten the 2012 national convention from 4 days to three, and has also decided to move the events to Charlotte’s two biggest outdoor arenas, Bank of America Stadium and Charlotte Motor Speedway. On Thursday, Mark Washburn, also a reporter with The Charlotte Observer, expressed his dismay  about the way 500 reporters that were called to the BOA stadium for a tour of their new September digs for the DNC convention this year, in which were told that the meeting would be strictly “off the record” and kept hush-hush, as in no telling folks what was said at this meeting.

It wasn’t the price of reporting this years event that rankled Mr. Washburn, which includes their designated “spots” to do their stand up reporting going for $1200 to $1800 bucks, or the six packs of Budweiser having to be bought from the areas vendor for $31.50 a pop, or even the revelation that the “media suites” would cost the reporter’s expense accounts about $25 grand.  All of that was taken with a grain of salt, as many media elitists stated, “it was less than they paid in Denver four years ago.” What rankled Mr. Washburn during the media tour for the 2012 DNC convention was the “cone of silence” demanded of them during the first order of business discussion. Mr. Washburn had the audacity to stand up to speak out against being told that things discussed at this meeting would be “off the record.” In his own words,  Mr. Washburn doesn’t like off- the-record. He prefers in-the-newspaper.  Good for him.

So what happened when Mr. Washburn stood up and spoke out against the gestapo-style cone of silence being imposed on them by Karen Burchard, the director of media logistics for this event? Mr. Theodore LeCompte, the chief operating officer for the convention committee promptly stood up and set Mr. Washburn straight: “If there are issues with the ground rules, you are perfectly welcome not to attend this session,” he said.  This comes a day after the DNC,  in announcing this years changes to the convention also promised to make it the “the most open and accessible in history.” Where have we heard that kind of false rhetoric before? Oh yes, during Barack Obama’s 2008 undefined hope and change campaign where we were told he would run the “most open and transparent” administration in history if elected.  This most recent statement of open and accessible DNC propaganda concerning this years convention, is just as credible today as it was back in 2008, which has now been proven to be just a bunch of hot air and Democratic party propaganda.

In another show of gestapo-style information management at this “media meeting”, popped up when Mr. Washburn notes that around lunchtime, “Chris Miller, morning news reporter on WBT-AM (1110) and one of the journalists in town you probably don’t want to push around, had been pulled aside by a convention press aide. She was concerned about a tweet he had sent that began, “DNC official just announced everything is now off-the-record.” He says she reminded him everything was off the record. Real-time monitoring of reporters tweets at a media meeting? Censorship comes to mind there, real nasty thugocracy and media bullying 101 on full display for all to see. Of course the DNC “director of communications and public affairs”, Kristie Greco takes openness and transparency to a whole new level when Mr. Washburn confronted her about being approached by DNC staff and told to shush. “Those are off-the-record conversations,” she said. “We will not confirm these conversations.”

 

Somewhere, Josef Goebbels is sure to be smiling at this blatant example of  DNC media manipulation  and the usage of progressive propaganda to make people think the DNC convention is all about “openness and accessibility.”  ( while swearing reporters to secrecy)

U/E Rate Makeover Can’t Hide America’s Beans and Rice Economy

America’s denial of economic reality continued this week with the posting of job growth numbers that are inflated due to the removal of over 4 million out of work Americans in the baseline figures of “worker participation rates.” Please see John Ransom’s article here for some harsh truths as to just how the unemployment numbers are being manipulated today. The lower worker participation numbers that are being used to falsely lower the unemployment rate is akin to people being spoon-fed a load of beans and rice, while being told it is a 4-course steak and lobster dinner. Just close your eyes to the truth, shovel the beans in, and pretend it is a 16 oz. Porterhouse steak. Judging by the number of fluffy media reports falsely suggesting that the 2010 American summer of recovery [myth] has now evolved into the 1980’s-style economic boom 6.0 of 2012 just in time for Barack Obama’s reelection, America is apparently quite content with the beans and rice economy of the past three years.

Setting up the false economic numbers during the 2011 holiday season.

Several media outlets were headlining the grand holiday sales as being a true sign of America’s recovering economy back in Dec. of 2011. Bloomberg declared: Retail Sales Climb 4.5% in it’s headline on Dec 31st. The S.F. Business Times said , “Overall, December same store sales at 24 retailers were up 3.6 percent, according to Kantar Retail. That’s up from the 3.1 percent sales gain in November 2011, and on top of a 3.2 percent same store sales gain in December 2010. (Results do not include Wal-Mart, which no longer reports monthly sales.)” Many media outlets were content with comparing the 2011 sales totals with the totals of 2010, which were some of the lowest on record, as in the above misleading statement that 2011 sales numbers were “up 3.2% over the 2010 numbers.” Dishing people out an extra helping of beans to go with their rice does not, in fact make it a steak dinner. While the message of an economic boom during the 2011 holiday season was promoted heavily in the media all holiday season long, the truth came home to roost in the following facts:

Sears/Kmart to Close 120 Stores as holiday sales plummeted during the 2011 holiday season.

Best Buy Holiday Sales Slump, 2012 Outlook Reaffirmed where we see the following fact:

The Richfield, Minnesota-based retailer, which is also known as the ‘big blue box’ because of the prominent design on Best Buy stores, reported revenues of $8.4 billion for the month of December, flat with last year.Total comparable store sales declined of 1.2 percent..

All during the months of Nov. and Dec. of 2011 we saw fluffed up projections about how great the holiday retail season would be, only to be served up a heaping helping of reality as we see the truth come out in the final sales numbers. Would you like some ketchup to go with that plate of beans?

Today’s misleading headline of the week comes from yahoo.com/AP: Unemployment rate falls to 8.5 pct., hiring surges
Nation added 200,000 jobs in December, ending the year with a surge of hiring; rate at 8.5 pct.

America is being served up that same dressed up beans and rice dinner posing as a steak and lobster economy with the current unemployment numbers, as we see that back in March of 2010 in a CNBC article, Jobless Rate Actually Stands at 11.5% which exposed the current method of operation being used by the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) to deflate actual unemployment numbers.

Finally, from the Ransom article linked above, we see the ultimate fallacy of the recently released BLS unemployment numbers:

Just using the average participation rate of 65.8 percent since 1980 supplied by Zero Hedge, there are 4.4 million workers missing from the work force. Zero Hedge predicts that if the BLS keeps dropping the workforce number at the current rate, unemployment will hit zero just prior to the general election no matter how many jobs Obama “saves”.
It won’t surprise anyone that as of December, the real implied unemployment rate was 11.4% – basically where it has been ever since 2009 – and at 2.9% delta to reported, represents the widest divergence to reported data since the early 1980s.

    And because we know this will be the next question, extending this lunacy, America will officially have no unemployed, when the Labor Force Participation rate hits 58.5%, which should be just before the presidential election.

“Waiter? Can we please get some steak sauce to go with this “Obama special” beans and rice dinner?”

Occupy Tampa ( all 7 of them) Say Tampa PD Using Tanks to Threaten Them

The following video comes to us via WTSP.com 10 NEWS-Tampa Bay, Florida, from an article titled, Are Tampa police using tanks to threaten Occupy protestors? Day in and day out we are inundated with false-flag sensationalism-seeking “news” headlines posed as questions such as this one. To prove this point unequivocally, the article and video itself tell us NO, Tampa PD is not in fact threatening Occupy Tampa with a tank, as their headline implies.

Members of the Occupy Tampa movement say TPD is cruising by in the big, armored trucks. Pictures spread around the country over Facebook and Twitter, leading to speculation that TPD was moving in with the tanks.”I think that it’s just another brick in a larger program of intimidation,” said protestor Joe Jay.

To which Tampa PD replies that it was just a coincidence, as the vehicle was in route to the Great American teach-in event being held in Tampa at the time. Of course that doesn’t stop 10 news from trying to further the irresponsible false-flag denouncing of our honorable police departments across America, as we see in their following paragraph:

That controversy comes as officials in California investigate why police pepper-sprayed non-violent protestors on the campus of UC-Davis over the weekend.

Which has been proven to have been a pre-planned set-up to prevent police from removing Occupiers across the country who are breaking the law by paralyzing them with false charges of police brutality.

After sifting through 150 pages on Google, every one of them spreading misinformation about the UC Davis pepper spray incident, I found this headline from NewsBusters: UC Davis Student Admits Protesters Surrounded Cops and Wouldn’t Let Them Leave

As Occupy-loving media continue to express outrage over protesters getting pepper-sprayed by campus police officers at the University of California at Davis last week, a surprising admission by one of the attendees was uncovered in an interview Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman did Monday.
One of the pepper-sprayed students told Goodman, “We had encircled them [campus police], and they were trying to leave, and they were trying to clear a path. And so, we sat down, linked arms, and said that if they wanted to clear the path, they would have to go through us

In the meantime, thousands of media outlets on TV and the internet are falsely portraying these incidents as police brutality and the uninformed masses are eating it up like starving hyenas at an all-you-can-eat free buffet today. Marxist/Anarchist operational methods call for the complete paralysis of the police force to prevent them from enforcing the rule of law. This is what is behind all of these false-flag police brutality claims coming from within the Occupy protests. Beware of the irresponsible media operatives promoting the degradation of our honorable police forces by promoting the lawlessness of the Occupy protests today. While people may laugh at the ignorant buffoons in the first video trying to claim the Tampa PD threatened them with a tank, take note that the false flag News 10-Tampa article was also used as a vehicle to promote and parrot the lies about the UC Davis pepper spray incident in it. One last aspect that seems to be forgotten in all of this false-flag police brutality, is the common-sense fact that pepper spray is an approved non-lethal weapon that is nationally approved to subdue criminals with out harming them. Refute the UC Davis supposed police brutality-pepper spray lies every time you see or hear them being parroted on the internet and across America. Without laws and law enforcement we are in a world of trouble. We need to support our law enforcement officers, not allow them to be paralyzed into not enforcing our laws with false claims of police brutality by the Occupy common criminals. Support the cops, not the criminals!

2012 just can’t get here fast enough!
